The panorama cross-country ski trail on the Danusa plateau, in the middle of the ski area Grüsch-Danusa, is of average in length, but one of the most scenic cross-country ski trails in all of Switzerland: Vilan, Schesaplana, Calanda and the Churfirsten tower into the sky.
Distance 4.8 km
Highest point1,771 m
Lowest point1,708 m
The panorama cross-country trail starts at the Berghaus Schwänzelegg on the Danusa plateau at an elevation of 1800 meters. It can easily be reached by gondola. The 360° view strays from the Vilan to the Schesaplana, the highest peak of the Rätikon chain with an elevation of 2965 meters, to Klosters and the Weissfluhgipfel. The Tektonikarena Sardona and Piz Sardona can be seen beyond the Calanda, which is Chur’s trademark. The Rhine valley lies to the west and the majestic sides of the Churfirsten tower above the Walensee.
The run on the extensive panorama loop on this beautiful snowy plateau can be shortened, depending on mood, motivation and time. The panorama cross-country trail is suitable for more experienced skiers. It offers very nice descents and a fascinating panoramic view of the winter scenery.
This trail is popular with participants of the Engadin ski marathon as the training at high elevation makes for a more intense work-out and training sessions can be shortened.
Changing and shower rooms are at the Berghaus Schwänzelegg. Please ask at the cash desk for a key. The use of the infrastructure is included in the cable car ticket.
